Four-Star Sky-Rise Hotel Steps from Niagara Falls
A never-ending deluge of water barrels over Horseshoe Falls, creating a thunderous roar and a constant spray of mist. As the largest waterfall at Niagara Falls, it’s one of the world’s most famous natural phenomena—and it’s just steps from the 42-story Embassy Suites by Hilton Niagara Falls. The four-star hotel’s Fallsview suites offer stunning views of the cascade.
In the morning, visit the complimentary breakfast buffet, which includes an omelet station. This deal comes with a dining credit for the onsite Keg Steakhouse & Bar, which overlooks the falls from the hotel’s ninth floor. The menu ranges from New York strip loin, filet mignon, and other steaks to upscale seafood dishes, such as Atlantic lobster tails. You’ll also get dining vouchers for TGI Fridays and, with select options, Outback Steakhouse. Other add-ons include a gaming credit at the Fallsview Casino and tastings and tours at four wineries in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region, which is renowned for its ice wine.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Panoramic Views of the Falls near Vegas-Style Casinos and Water Parks
At Niagara Falls—considered by many to be one of the world’s seven natural wonders—water thunders downward from a height of nearly 200 feet, crashing onto craggy boulders below. The falls straddle the border between Canada and the United States, with segments located in both New York and Ontario, but the Canadian side of the Niagara River is universally hailed as the finest vantage point to take in all three of Niagara Falls’ photogenic brinks: American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls.
Hornblower cruises ferry raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls from April through October, depending on the river’s ice conditions. Year-round, Journey Behind the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls—board an elevator that descends 150 feet into the bedrock, then stand at an observation deck steps away from the cascading water.
A 10-minute walk from the falls, you’ll see the neon glow of the Clifton Hill neighborhood. Its Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
